Margaret travels the globe gathering reference material for paintings of unique and interesting boats indigenous to specific areas. Experiencing the moment and depicting her personal vision has become a signature element in her work and brought her acclaim as the only fine artist allowed access by the America3 Foundation to depict the first all-women team to vie for the prestigious America’s Cup. It is that same spirit which has taken her to a small island in the San Blas region of the Caribbean, where she lived in a thatched hut among the Kuna Indians studying their watercraft. A published artist, her work hangs in many corporate, municipal, and private collections. Margaret has summered at the Jersey Shore since she was a child and currently resides in Grand Haven, Michigan.
